I just wanted to share the lasted Test Knit called Confection. It is a new free pattern from She-Knits. I have blog listed on my blog roll under blogs I read. It will be available on Ravelry as a free pattern soon, so be watching for it. It is a Baby Shrug. This is a size 3 month. I used some yarn from my stash called Bazic Wool. It is a Superwash wool by Classic Elite Yarns. It was a great knit and fun to do. The shrug still needs to be blocked. Which I will get to and post about later. I dunno if it is a good idea or not, but I think I am going to Kool-Aid dye it. I will post about it tomorrow or the next day. It will be my first try at this process.

I got my Birthday Swap in the mail yesterday. I got my picture and wanted to tell everyone how much I liked my gift! First, Thank you Marisol. You did really well picking out my goodies. It’s scary how well she did without knowing me. There is 2 skeins of Noro Kureyon, a skein of lovely Malabrigo. There is a knitpicks yarn dying pattern and yarn. That will have to be a project for a warm day. There was also, addi turbo’s, Holiday Interweave Knits, cute leafy stitch markers and some M&M’s! The Noro is actually a color pattern I picked to do my Kid’s Club skirt in. So, I all ready know exactly what I will be doing with that yarn. Making a hat or a Booga Bag to match that cute skirt. I think I will just keep the Malabrigo as a pet for awhile to stroke since it is so soft. Thank you again! I just wanted to gush over the goodies! They are still on my table, nicely placed. So, I can drool when I walk by and try to decide what to make! Yay! I’m so excited!
This is a picture of the children’s Cupcake Mitts Pattern, by Karen Neal. I will be starting to knit a pair today! I think they are so adorable. I think that my daughter would love these. They are so cheery and bright. Perfect for the little cupcake in your life! I will post my progress to show the world!
This pattern can be found on Etsy for purchase from karendipity.etsy.com BTW, tell her I sent you!
Stash diving today produced another WIP that has been hibernating. This must be finished asap. I will update this post when I come across the pattern in my handy dandy pattern book. I do know it was knitted with Brown Sheep Worsted. I love the color! But wait! Houston, It looks like we have a problem! Looks like the opening for the head is too small. Opps.. Most kids have big heads in proportion to their little bodies.
Well, they are coming along. Here is my progress on bootie number 2. 80% of the 2nd bootie was knitted at gymnastics and taekwondo tonight. It is such an easy pattern to memorize while knitting. I was a little nervous as I was knitting the first one. I had no physical picture to refer to while knitting. So, I had to go to Ravelry to look at finished ones. I just said to myself, do what the pattern says. Trust it .. So it made better sense when I started the short rows there the toe of the bootie. I hope they are kick proof! The are cute. I may do some to donate to Stitches From The Heart. However, my charity knitting is kinda on hold. I finished one hat. I planned on finishing 5. Life has gotten in the way of my plans once again. My sisters baby shower is on the 9th of February. So…Her hand knits have taken a priority. We think her baby will be here early. It is her 4th one and all the others were early. I hope she doesn’t cough or sneeze when she is labor on the way to the hospital this time.. She has very quick and easy deliveries.. I am praying she does not have the baby on the side of the road in the car. Well, she wouldn’t be the first lady it has happened to. Lucky her.
Another Hat! ummm done! This hat is modeled by my daughter’s baby doll Amazing McKayla. It is for my sister’s new baby girl when she gets here . It is a Larissa Brown Pattern. Which is also a free pattern on her blog The Stitch Marker. The link is provided in my blog roll as The Stitch Marker or Larissa Brown. Please check her out. Her patterns are so cute. She also has a book coming out soon in the spring. Looks like a must have. Anyways the hat was fun and easy to knit! Very cute baby hat. Lots of options in knitting on this hat. You could add stripes or anything thing else you’s like. I wanted a fast knit so I kept it very basic. Enjoy!
I really been on a mission lately. Well, here is another hat. It’s totally cute. It is from a pattern by Larissa Brown. It is the Meat Head Hat. This is her book that is coming out in the spring! It looks like she did a great job on it. I know I can’t wait to get my mitts on it!!!
